Kakadu National Park

Important COVID-19 update – Visitor restrictions

COVID-19 safety measures remain in place at Kakadu National Park. The Northern Territory Government has implemented a number of health directions to keep the community safe. It is important to comply with the current travel restrictions and to use the Territory Check-In app to register at visitor sites and campgrounds in Kakadu.

A short, shady loop around picture-perfect Mardukal Billabong.

This relaxing walk takes you to a beautiful picnic spot overlooking the water. The billabong is lined with andjimjim (water pandanus), towering silver-leaved paperbarks and shady syzygiums.

Take a fishing rod and fish from the high bank at the end of the walk, but if you get a snag say goodbye to your lure – large saltwater crocs live in this billabong so stay out of the water. They rarely show themselves but they are there – don’t go down the bank to the water’s edge!
